Great app  Harry_head  4 star

Easy to use and the biggest video library on the planet. 👍👍


What happened to subscriptions!?  Minenewb  2 star

I just opened the app and checked subscriptions and now I CAN'T EVEN SEE WHO I AM SUBBED TO!? You messed up BIG TIME and I am not the only one who thinks that. FIX. THIS.


Terrible performance on iPad Air  AvatarRishi  3 star

Update 6/23/17 -Performance had gotten better but still lags when scrolling through. However, the YouTube gaming app works much better than this for some reason. If the YouTube gaming app is a 4, this app tops out at a 3. Insane slow down and lag causes me to not use the app at all and there are so many glitches in the app that make it frustrating to use. Still no optimization to the app and YouTube Gaming runs much better.


Crap  Mistymoore1981  1 star

I used to enjoy this app a lot. Not anymore. This recent update is absolute crap!!! Rest assured I won't be using it until it is fixed. I can get in to my library, but I still can't play any ofthe videos in my playlists.

Uploading videos, Apple TV app need a ton of work  David Chartier  2 star

YouTube and my Red subscription overall are ok. I love not having to deal with ads. But I want to upload more videos from my iPad, and the upload features are totally lacking from the desktop version. We need more options for editing and adding music. I heard there used to be a separate, dedicated app for this. Maybe you could bring that back. I use YouTube for Apple TV multiple times a day too, but it's really lacking. We can't like videos or check descriptions for information. Search needs a lot of help too.

PLEASE FIX THIS ONE THING!!!  Dr Polar Bear  3 star

Hey the app is not bad... it gets the job done. But there's been one bug for the longest time that has never been addressed for some reason. Bug: after leaving the app and switching wifi or something (not sure exactly when) but it always says "no connection" when I click on a video. But I do have connection. The list of videos refresh and thumbnails loads too. But it doesnt let me click on a video because it thinks i dont have connection. I leave LTE off for yt. Which might be related to the bug. I need to close the app completely and reopen yt for it to work again. Please fix this. It's existed for years now... Thanks.

Internet? Or a bug?

Looking Good YouTube 😎  Internet? Or a bug?  5 star

Update gave the app a much smoother and appealing feel! Thank you for fixing the annoying "reply Option" pop up.


Way too many crashes  RivalAlioth  3 star

This wouldn't be an issue if it wasn't so frequent. I have to close and reopen the app constantly, and it's incredibly irritating. Had this issue been solved already, it would be 5 stars.


Make the videos playable in the background  IDontLiketheCold1  4 star

YouTube is good and all but the only thing I want is the ability to play videos in the background. Like YouTube++ . Please implement it into the next update

É muito bom


Horrible  Darkwizard1000000  1 star

With every update it gets worse. Also an ad broke my headphones because it had a very loud and deep noise that they could not handle


Would give zero stars  CockJugglingThunderKunt  1 star

Youtube is terrible now, google ruined it and doesnt care about the monster it turned into.


Video disappears  Gizmo461  1 star

If I'm watching a video and want to browse for another to watch, the bar at the bottom of the screen that's normally there so that you can go back to your video disappears. The audio continues to play, but I have no way to continue to watch the video.


Sourcefed blues  tentacledlisa  5 star

Dang seeing sourcefed on here made me sad.

Low video quality and connection drops  AaronDancer  1 star

It's been getting worse with each update. I frequently get "no connection" messages and have to restart the app, or the streaming quality is extremely slow so I get really low-red videos on 100mbps internet.

Horrible Update  Pas Mon  1 star

- If I am listening to music but suddenly click on the YouTube app, it turns my music off. - Tapping the screen twice on the side to skip forward/backward does not work on first try anymore and often times just stops working altogether. - There was a glitch where YouTube wouldn't load at all (yet, all my other apps did). - Silly recommendations, please stop the scary videos. - Stop with the Neutrogenia commercial that I cannot skip. Not only that, but showing 26-30 second ads with no skip is terrible. Please stop.
